must admit i was dissapointed with it as well so i give it a miss now And i didnt realise Carol only did 4 progs she was really good,talk about down to earth She Is hope she makes more and she,s the only gardener that makes Monty look well dressed she, great
Good luck all
I love Carol Klein's fingernails! I wonder who does the cooking in her house I probably like anyone who loves their garden and she loves her garden so enthusiastically.
I do record it but then fast foward through items/segments that I am not interested in. With regard to other programmes, if you have Sky Arts, there has been a series on National Trust gardens, narrated by Penelope Keith, giving the history of the garden, its conception and a history of the person who created it. The ones on Sissinghurst and Hidcote were very informative and some fantastic shots of the gardens and their overall design
I have enjoyed Rachael's bit today the joy of gardening as letter J great ideas for combinations of plant and I do like the grasses
Alys fowler's bit on jasmines
anyone else watched it yet and liked bits
Hi all, If any of you Ladies remember Charlie Dimmock , she used to garden in bear hands as well ,but to avoid soil and other debris from getting under her nails she would drag her fingers across a bar of soap so when she washed her hands the soap would dissolve hence clean finger nails . Maybe Carol doe's the same.I hope so.
Well. having enthused about the program in the first place (I started this thread). After watching the first two items 'Jungle' & 'Jamaca' this morning, I switched off.
Sorry......twas a likewise a likewise thread I started!
David you need to skip that bit and see if there is anything you enjoy in the rest of the programme on iplayer some bits I like and some not so interesting to me but then it is your own opinion
clogherhead. I do the same with soap, it needs to be a bit gooey to dig your nails into though but stops muck getting under them and a nail brush on your nails takes away all the muck on top.
I've cooked Sunday dinner when no one would have known I'd been in the garden.
